To Create a Workcell Template
A workcell template is an XML file containing information about a workcell. You can create a workcell template based on a single workcell or on multiple workcell.
1. Go to a Resources view in the Process Table.
2. Select one or more workcells.
3. Click . The New Template dialog box opens.
4. By default, the template name is based on the name of the first selected workcell. You can change it by typing a different name in the Template Name box. It must comply with the filename requirements for your operating system and have the .xml extension.
5. If you want to link an image to the template, specify the path and name of the image file in the Image box. It can be a GIF or JPEG file. You can browse for the image file by clicking next to the Image box. Once an image file is linked to the template, you can view the image by clicking .
6. The Steps tabbed page lists the names of selected workcells. If you want to specify the extraction priority, type the numbers in the corresponding Extraction Priority boxes.
7. Use the Parameters tabbed page, if desired, to specify parameter names and values associated with the template.
* These are data management parameters associated with the template, not the workcell parameters. The workcell parameter values are derived from the workcell on which the template is based.
8. Use the Prompts tabbed page to define a custom prompt for the references you have selected while creating the workcell. If you do not define a prompt, the existing internal prompt is used.
9. Use the Notes tabbed page, if desired, to specify comments for the template.
10. Click Preview to view the template information in the Creo Parametric embedded browser. The information includes the image associated with the template, notes, special parameters (if any). It also contains the list of workcells included in the template, alsong with the number of axes and the names of the tools for each workcell.
11. Click OK. The system saves the template file in the XML format in the current working directory.
